“Tru,” adapted from the words and works of Truman Capote by Jay Presson Allen, directed by Associate Professor Wm. Perry Morgan Hall, 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Jan. 10-11, and 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, Jan. 11-12, Annie Sellars Jordan Parlor Theatre, Main Building. All tickets $10.
“Tru” is set in Capote’s New York City apartment the week before Christmas 1975. An excerpt from Capote’s infamous unfinished “Answered Prayers” recently has been published. Having recognized thinly veiled versions of themselves, Manhattan socialites turn their backs on the man they once considered a close confidant. Alone and lonely, Capote — soothing himself with pills, vodka, cocaine, and chocolate truffles — muses about his checkered life and career.
